    speaking of crappy former Pistons, there are several available this year as free agents. now, let's imagine that we had a clean slate, and $0 worth of contracts going into next year. think of the possibilities (all of these players are unrestricted free agents or have early termination option.)

    Starters (salary $mil) Backups

    C: Nazr Mohammed ($2.5) Theo Ratliff ($1.5)
    PF: Brian Cardinal ($1.5) Joe Smith ($2)
    SF: Grant Hill ($3) (player option) Jarvis Hayes ($2)
    SG: Mike James (ETO) ($3) Maurice Evans (player option, $2.5)
    PG: Carlos Arroyo ($1.5) Lindsey Hunter ($1.5)

    Jerry Stackhouse ($1.5)

    Now, that's only 11 players, and only $22.5mil in salaries. That leaves about $30mil, right?

    Enter, Joe D: Recruiter.

    We opt to pick up Chris Bosh. I'm not sure what the max is that we can pay him, but lets just say it's $18mil. That means we can't afford 2 max players unless they agree to take less cash. So Joe calls Lebron James and makes it happen. (I assume these 2 will be willing to take bench roles in the best interest of winning a championship)

    This also leaves 2 roster spots open to potentially lure Chris Webber out of retirement or work a trade for Darko :stirthepot:

    Lol, talk about a graveyard. Funny thread Harry. What's the over/under on how many of those players will still be on an NBA roster in 2 years time? I'd say 2.

    You should hone your GM skills with some fantasy bball I think.

    Darko will be an unrestricted Free Agent this summer. Joe will have the last laugh, because everything that happened was simply Joe's grand scheme to build a team around Rodney Stuckey and Darko.
